HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
Well, I managed to stay awake until the crystal ball at NYC Time Square dropped at Midnight 12/31/12. Usually I work, but this time I wasn't working as I am officially semi-retired. That's right! I put in my notice to leave Mt. Carmel Health after 29 years and 5 months. I've seen so many changes at Mt. Carmel West and St. Ann's, but the biggest change was my decision to leave. When I called Human Resources to find out about my pension, they recommended that I take early retirement. So I followed their suggestion and decided to go ahead and retire. So as of today, this is my third day of retirement and what did I do? Well, I beaded, naturally. My retirement is short though as next Monday the 7th, I'll be reporting to Nationwide Children's Hospital to work as a Medical Laboratory Scientist in the Core lab. I'm excited, happy, and ready for a new phase of my life.
So I decided to celebrate the New Year and my RETIREMENT even though it is short, I'm going to do a give away with three wonderful Lark Jewelry and Beading books for you my friends. I decided to end the give away on January 6th which will in actuality be my last day of retirement. The give away is only for anyone as I'll be willing to ship internationally this time around. To be eligible please leave a comment in this blog post making sure you have a way for me to contact you if you are the winner. If you do not have a way for me to contact you to get shipping details or if I do not hear back from the winner by January the 14th, then the second name will be the winner. So please, do make sure you have a way for me to get ahold of you. Also PLEASE don't be worried if you comment doesn't show up instantly. I have my settings so that all comments need approved by me.
What am I giving away? Well, I have THREE BOOKS by Lark Craft. These three books are part of a 4 book 30-Minute series edited by Marthe Le Van. They are 30-Minute Bracelets, 30-Minute Earrings, and 30-Minute Earrings. Each book contains 60 projects so that makes 180 projects for one comment. Sounds easy? Well, it is! Each book is filled with quick-to-make projects for those wanting to have fun while learning new techniques. The projects in these books are "primarily metal-centric, with some alternative materials, and they reflect a wide array of techniques, styles, and aesthetic approaches". What a fun way to experiment and tickle the Creative Muse this new year for one lucky person.
If you can't wait to find out if you are the ONE LUCKY WINNER on JANUARY 7th, then you can always purchase these three books at Barnes and Noble and GUESS WHAT! They are all 1/2 price! What a gift.
And speaking of gifts...wait until you hear this! Lark Jewelry and Beading is giving EVERYONE the best gift this new year. I counted 29 FREE projects for you to download as a gift from Lark Craft Books. What could be better?
Many, many, many project PDFs from Lark Jewelry & Beading in 2012 … for you to enjoy in 2013!
